be absolutely true. but then again, you just never know where steve was going to be. you could be on the house floor and here he is defending trafficking on the house floor. a republican defending a democrat. if you ever need a lawyer, you want steve latourette to be your lawyer because he gave an incredible performance that one time. . but he was a guy who was dean of our delegation, because everybody could go to steve with an issue. whether it was an appropriations issue, internal issue, issue for ohio, he was a guy who would give you great advice and would work to get you an answer for the problem. so whether it was the appropriations committee or quite frankly the transportation committee where he served much of his career, was an area where he knew more about transportation and transportation issues, quite frankly than anybody in this town. he was a walking book on transportation issues. pretty hard for a buckeye to talk about a university of michigan graduate this way, mr. speaker, but it's going to be a big void for this house for not just all five, but especially steve latourette who h

[applause] we have a few minutes to ask a few questions, to get some thoughts from jim and steve about how they see the issues ahead of for the past couple of years. jim and i have gotten to know each other over the past couple of years. i have enjoyed that. we have seen a lot of stuff going on. not nearly as much wheeling and dealing as you have seen in congress. i am sure you have the scars to show for it. over the past tumultuous years, what of the biggest things you think yo

became president of the united states, and i am still cooking. >> steve forbes, and gen and barbara bush on growing up in the white house, sunday evening at 7:30 eastern and pacific. right through christmas day on c-span3. members of the senate foreign relations committee received a top-secret closed briefing wednesday on the september 11 attack on the u.s. consulate and then got the -- in benghazi libya. this is about 12 minutes. >> what do you think of that finding and [inaudible] >> my understanding is that the standard with which the accountability board looks at people is a very high standard. it is called a breach of duty. there is no question that there were people within the state department that were remiss and did not execute in an appropriate way. there are also some cultural issues. there were no doubt a number of fallen. to that end, i know that secretary clinton was unable to be able to testify tomorrow in an open setting. i do think it is imperative that she testify in an open session, prior to any changing. i'd think that is very important for her. i think that is very im
would have the right to conceal his weapon as well. host: this is steve on twitter. guest: well, that was said after aurora and after gabby giffords in tucson. the polls never budged after those. the supreme court ruled clearly that the second amendment is an individual right. the way to change that is to have a change in the constitution. again, you can argue with the world the way you wish it or the way in which it is. deal with the realities we have. the firearms are not going away. what are we going to do about law abiding people that want to protect themselves and others? that is the issue. host: another tweet for you. guest: the nra will have to speak for itself. i never understood why if you buy a gun at a gun show there should be less of a reporting of a background check then if you went into a store. most of this ground would have been there before, there it was after columbine or the cafeteria in texas. the texas incident is a tragic one. there was a woman that had a gun. she was going into the cafeteria and have begun with her. -- and she had it with her. she decided
bipartisan budget in a generation. i want to thank steve latourette and jim cooper for their efforts and leadership on this. i also want to thank congressman quigley to co-sponsor and advance this legislation, which is based on the bipartisan simpson-bowles framework. this budget ultimately failed to pass the house, but i remain proud of our bipartisan effort for which the u.s.a. today called us the brave 38. and i believe this type of thoughtful independent leadership that this is the type of leadership that the 10th district deserves. i also believe that the courage and leadership shown by the house to take on the difficult, but necessary position of reining entitlement spending deserves recognition. we know that medicare stands out as a primary driver of our debt in the future. and unfortunately, this future is not so far off. with one of medicare's key programs scheduled to go bankrupt in the next 10 to 12 years, sustaining the status quo means dramatic cuts down the road on the vulnerable americans who need the program the most, crippling increases to the debt and most likely bo
. but since then, we know that president obama and steve [indiscernible] spoke yesterday evening. the fact that neither side is leaking what happened on that call, you might say that they are trying to get back on track. they know that if they leak each other's confrontations, that is not good. there are only two participating really in this negotiation. and if they choose not to leak out that information widely, it is a speculation. >> what is the handle and how quickly could be brought -- what is the end goal and how quickly could be brought up for a vote? >> the goal is a down payment or some kind of thing for revenues, which is enough to get us past the fiscal cliff, turn off these automatic spending cuts and make sure that taxes don't go up. and then they would figure out what to do with the upper bracket. and then there would be a mechanism that would guarantee further action next year. if at all possible, they would disagree next year and there would be some sort of trigger or punishment for their lack of action. that sounds relatively simple, i think, putting it all together could
, including making it possible for us to hire such extraordinary people like steve edwards and been restored and all of the other people -- and ben reeseberg and all the other people. [applause] you have been wondering what i have been doing and i have been wondering what you have been doing. [laughter] >> those who were disappointed by this outcome, the democrats elated by this outcome -- given the conventional wisdom around this campaign, the president's approval ratings that were barely above 50%, often dipping below it, the unemployment around 8%, gdp growth stock of around 2% -- the conventional wisdom was that should -- that this president should not be reelected. as you take a look at what happened two weeks ago, how do you assess this? >> let me just say first that i made a very good living and politics betting against conventional wisdom. it is a general principle of mine that the conventional wisdom is almost always wrong and it was wrong here. it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles and journalism is that we look at what happened in the last election or pas

the book from steve. thank you for that. guest: when you were talking about obamacare, and you need not to read the press releases that obama puts out about what it is supposed to do. you need to actually look at the tax increases in it, the regulations in it. the next 4 years will be very ugly when it comes to economics. all the ugly parts of obamacare that he did not want you to focus on, those take place over the next four years. the things that he thought people would appreciate, those have happened already. those are the ones they spoke about before the election. we are now seeing the tax increases. this is not going to be free. there are massive tax increases that i just talked about such as medical devices. they are raising taxes on six people. average income of $53,000 a year, they would get hit by a tax increase on people with high medical bills. atr.org has the right up on it appeared there are five obamacare taxes that will hit january 1. that is the real permanent non- moving fiscal cliff bridge abutment that we will run into in january. host: madison, wisconsin, a democ
. thank you. i would be happy to answer your questions. >> i'm steve from cnbc. i have a lot of questions, but why are there different targets for qe and for the funds rate? what does that achieve? what good is a target if you have to make reference to a calendar dates in the statement itself? it's not substantially different from the calendar dates that we set in october. do you have to keep doing that to make it clear? and you have another paragraph after that which says it's not just targets, it is something else. so i'm not sure what could the targets are if you have to reference the calendar date and then say in the next paragraph it is not really targets. >> first, the asset purchases and the rate increases have different objectives than. asset purchases are about creating near-term momentum in the economy, trying to strengthen growth and job creation in the near term. and the increases in the federal funds rate target, when they ultimately occur, are about producing accommodations. hipaa different objectives. second, the asset purchases are a less well understood tool. we will be l
one. that is my statement. host: i will get it from steve. thank you for that call. any comment? guest: i think when you were talking about obamacare, you need not to read the press releases that obama put out about what it is supposed to do and you need to actually look at the tax increases and at the regulations and at the next -- the next four years are going to be very ugly and terms of economics because all of the ugly parts of obamacare that he did not want you to focus on, those take place over the next four years. the things he thought the people would appreciate and like, those have happened already. those of the ones they talked about before the election. we are now seeing the tax increases. this is not going to be free. there are massive tax increases that i just talked about. medical devices. on sick people. they raise taxes on six people. average income -- $53,000 per year that get hit by that tax increase on people with high medical bills. it is on our web site -- atr.org corp. -- if you want to see the right up. there are five obamacare taxes that hit january 1. that is
what demons affe cted him. host: steve from new jersey, welcome to the conversation. caller: thank you for c-span. my suggestion is twofold. there should be a trigger lock where the lock prevents the trigger from being fired. it should be an expensive one. not the kind that doesn't work properly but a certified trigger lock. each owner of a gun every two or three years should meet with a psychiatrist or psychologist which would certify that the owner understands the importance of the trigger lock and has to understand that it to be on every time the owner is not using the gun. host: john fund? guest: having a psychiatrist or psychologist lecture on the importance of a trigger lock may not be the right area for their expertise. it's probably the law enforcement who can send a more effective message and psychologists. i am not an expert on trigger locks. host: california, sarah, you are on the air. caller: good morning. that school was my elementary school and my sisters were all stunned. i do not believe that having guns in schools is going to make that big of a difference. during world
